Question 15.81

Postby 104822659 » Sun Feb 19, 2017 9:25 pm

Hi, I'm not understanding the loss and reverse part of the question. If anyone can help, that would be great!
The equilibrium constant for the second-order attachment of a substrate to the active site of an enzyme was found to be 326 at 310 K. At the same temperature, the rate constant for the second-order attachment is 7.4 x10^ 7 L*mol^-1*s^-1. What is the rate constant for the loss of unreacted substrate from the active site (the reverse of the attachment reaction)?

The question is really just asking the relationship between forward reaction rate constant k, reverse reaction rate constant k' and the equilibrium constant K.
